We’re very excited and proud to support young musicians, both in terms of access to performance and training opportunities. It would be great to give them your support so come down and see what great young talent we have in our local area.

Many thanks to the EBJO musical director Sue Dunsdon who has organised the rehearsal time accordingly and is looking forward to giving her young players this great opportunity.
